This one is a Christmas present for our great niece, it may have to be posted to her, so the butterfly has to be a bit more robust than the previous one, hence the shallow wing angle, with a bit of reinforcement under each wing.
The box is made with elm and purple heart, the wings being mahogany and the body a scrap of purple heart. I'm really pleased with the colours, just hope the purple heart doesn't lose it's colour too quickly!
(just noticed I'd put oak instead of elm, now corrected!)

Tom, that is a very lovely music box. I especially like the look of the purple heart and mahogany of the butterfly. A lucky great niece.[smile]
